WaPo’s Capehart Blamed Trump for Smollett Hoax, Hasn’t Apologized

Because democracy dies in darkness – or something.

While many in the mainstream press jumped at the opportunity to label Trump supporters as racist homophobes in the wake of the Jussie Smollett hate hoax, most at least qualified the “attack,” recognizing that Smollett was making allegations that had not been proven.

But not The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart. The words “allegedly” or “reportedly” were completely dropped from his vernacular when he joined National Public Radio’s “1A” – funded by your tax dollars – on Friday. Capehart was absolutely sure that Smollett’s attack happened just the way the actor described, and that white, Middle American, Trump-supporting bigots were to blame.

He said:

“I think that for a lot of African Americans, it sent several signals. One, the noose around the neck is unmistakeable. It goes back to segregation, Jim Crow, lynching, the sort of domestic terror that was visited upon African Americans in the South. The fact that it [was] repeatedly said ‘This is MAGA country’ adds to sort of the atmosphere of menace that African Americans in particular and people of color in general have felt since the advent of the Trump administration, given the rhetoric from the campaign and out of the administration.

And then lastly, I would say the fact that Jussie Smollett is [a] famous African American, and that this happened in Chicago sends a clear signal, I think, to African Americans that there are people in this country who want to make it clear that no matter who you are, where you live, you are not safe.If an African American is not safe from racial violence in Chicago — racially motivated and homophobic, cannot leave that out, homophobic violence — in an urban center like Chicago, then you’re not safe anywhere.”

Note the timing: Capehart made these matter-of-fact statements on Friday, when the status of Smollett’s claims were already being questioned in the mainstream. The same day, a Chicago ABC News station had reported that Chicago Police believed the “attack” had been staged. Shouldn’t the status of the investigation have at least merited some consideration from Capehart?

Apparently not.

BLP reached out to Capehart, but he did not return a comment request.

ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’

Has he been compromised?

Published

on

After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.

Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.

“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.

“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.

At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.

“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.

“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.

Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.

“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

The entire clip can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:

After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.

“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.

“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…

He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…

It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.

Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
